Member Ratings and Notes

N: Sharp and spirity initially. Slight hint of butter, slight lemon and a citric acid quality. Light wood, dried fruits, vanilla. 

 

P: Very light. Low heat. Slightly lemony and gradual heat; lightly sweet. Wet hay, an undercurrent of vanilla and raw sugar.

 

F: Turns more towards creme brulee. Quick finish, low heat, vaguely perceptible wood.

 

Glenrothes needs to be about 20 years old before it's got anything going on. 

 

RETASTE: Less sharp than I remembered. Still not a fan. C/C+.
